Apparently not... after all, the RK50 does cost more than any stepper I've ever seen ($500)...

but MY GOD, that's one HUGE ****ING POT! I hope it's worth the cash...

My thoughts mirror Eric's particuarly since I got to see the full sized pics. That is a *HUGE* pot.

Oi Ari,

vc e brasileiro, eu falo portugueis porque morei no seu lindo pais nos anos passsados...

The sonic performance of this RK-50 is simply extraordinary, better than the cheaper RK-40: more opened sound and more detailed sound too...

Atè mais

Not to mention worth more than most people's headamps!!!! If Eric is correct, $500 for a pot is quite expensive, but when you have a headamp like Nik has, what's another $500 to get an improvement in the sound!!! I for one would love to hear what this rig sounds like!!!!!! It's one of a kind and decked out to te gills!!!
